On April 23, the Policy Futures research program hosted an international webinar on UNESCO’s and OECD’s ambition to govern the future of education.
Our close colleague and honorary professor of the Policy Futures research program, Professor Susan Robertson gave a wonderful and insightful keynote on the topic: Guardians of the Future: International Organisations, Anticipatory Governance and Education.
Susan is Professor of Sociology of Education and Head at the Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge and honorary professor of the Policy Futures research program.
Her most recent works are on the future and anticipatory global governance. Susan is founding editor and currently Editor in Chief of Globalisation, Societies and Education.
Our two discussants, Lecturer in higher education, Janja Komljenovic from Lancaster University and Senior lecturer Miguel Antonio Lim from Manchester University provided comments and reflections on Susan’s presentation.
Thank you to our keynote, discussants and wonderful international colleagues for engaging in an important discussion on the role of UNESCO and OECD.
